hey guys wave2.gif after being gone for quite some time i have emerged from the abyss with some Intel i5 4670k tests.

the story.
well as of late my beloved asrock fatality professional-m mobo died and i decided to jump to haswell for the fun of it.
i bought myself a gigabyte GA-Z87MX-D3H and in i5 4670k. after playing with it for a day the temps were creeping to 100c
at a 4.0ghz overclock with the voltage on auto the temps were in the 80c range under full load at 3.8ghz with 1.2v. i figured out that at 3.5ghz the cpu was stable at 1.114v so i used that as a basline for these tests.


3.5ghz 100 base clock x 1.25 gear ratio 125 x 28 1.114vcore


this test showed my highest core temp to be 68c



let the delid begin

method: box cutter and 0.5m guitar pick


all nice and clean laugher.gif



after all was said and done i tested the cpu to make sure it didnt die. then i proceeded to swap the intel tim with my personal fav
prolimatech PK-1 and i used elmers contact cement to reattach the ihs for testing purposes.

3.5ghz 125 x28 1.114vcore swapped Intel tim with prolimatech PK-1


this showed that i dropped my temps by 4c, not a big drop but for someone who doesn't want to direct die cool the chip and
possibly resell the chip it is a viable solution to shave off a few c. depending on the tim used you may see more or less.



after all that was said and done i did a direct die install using the same tim. this was my initial plan but unlike my ivy chip
i failed to post some before and after results as well as i didnt even think to swap tim.

here are the final results

3.5ghz 125 x 28 direct die


despite the fact that my highest temp was still 64 overall my cores stayed around 52c max load.

i will be posting some more pics and results later down the road as i get all my software installed.
im looking at doing a new build sometime soon im just not sure what i want to do yet.
im bored now that i have down time and im not constantly under the gun with my music.

i hope you guys enjoyed this i did even though it only killed an hour of my time stun.gif hahahaha
